Title: The Integrated Circuit Game
Url: http://www.nobelprize.org/educational/physics/integrated_circuit/about...
Publisher: Nobel Foundation
Description: Integrated circuits can be found in almost every modern electrical device; such as computers, cars, television sets, CD players, cell phones, and so on. But what is an integrated circuit and what is the history behind it? Learn about Nobel Laureate Jack Kilby and his part in the invention that is the basis of all modern technology. In the beginning of this game you have to take the quiz consisting of four questions, otherwise you will not be able to move on in this game. The answers to the questions are found in the museum. As "Maria" you walk around in the fantasy town "Techville" in Texas. At some points you have to give the right answers or figure out something before you can move on. You will pass a portal that takes you back in time to Nobel Laureate Jack Kilby's lab in 1958, among other things. The challenge in this game is to make it to the end.
